'Twilight' star introduces first domestic violence, sexual assault symbol on Capitol Hill

Flanked by Sen. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) and six advocates, Greene told a crowd gathered for the briefing, “Young women are the population group with the highest rate of dating violence and sexual assault.”

Wearing a knee-length navy blue dress, black pumps, and understated makeup, she continued, “I hope that by raising my voice and speaking out, they might find the courage to leave abusive situations or to help their friends.“

Greene, who was appearing on behalf of the Avon Foundation for Women, also helped reveal the results of a national study on young people and sexual assault.
